Buy Used, Make It New: Money-Smart Ways to Get a Great Car

Buy Used, Make It New: Money-Smart Ways to Get a Great Car

Everyone has a dream car that they keep in the back of their mind, but not everyone has the extra cash to turn that dream into a reality. Purchasing a brand new vehicle off the lot can be pretty expensive, especially if you have a high performance vehicle in mind. Does this mean that a dream car is just a pipe dream if you can’t buy it new right now?

Absolutely not! Money savvy auto aficionados know that used cars with dramatically reduced price tags might be old dogs, but they can certainly be taught some new tricks thanks to some new digs.

Using Modifications to Improve More For Less

When buying a new car, it can be tempting to make a down payment and then dish out big bucks each month in installments. The real kick in the seat here is all the interest that adds up. Some people in tough financial situations or with bad credit scores can pay double the selling price due to interest. That’s pretty outrageous.

One of the nice things about using modifications to rebuild and enhance a used vehicle is that you don’t have to sweat the interest. Start with the piece or upgrade you like the most – maybe an entirely custom motor or just a new turbo – and you know you can afford without breaking the bank. Once you have some more saved up, look into getting another piece – perhaps a suspension lift or methanol injection kit? Before you know it, you can have a used car that makes new cars green with envy, and you never had to sit on your hands and watch interest pile up along the way.

Also, you get the added benefit of pride in your vehicle. New cars are great – no arguing that – but there’s an unmatched satisfaction in driving a machine you built, more or less, from the ground up, exactly how you like it.
